This year’s birthday present for my best friend (and her fiancé). It’s meant to fill some blank space on their living room walls, and I can’t wait to see it there! The magpies have some personal, symbolic meaning, but they’re also just really pretty birds.

Drawing ink on Fabriano hot pressed satinated paper.

Today’s music suggestion: Small of Two Pieces from Xenogears (www.youtube.com/watch?v=k7D0U_…). Neither of them has ever played the game as far as I know but the song keeps reminding me of them, so here we go.

ich liebe Elstern. Besonders die zwei Elstern die den Garten meiner Schwester verwüsten :D Das sind soo kluge (und nachtragende) Vögel. Als sie diesen Frühling Bäume in ihrem Garten gepflanzt hat, kamen die beiden immer und zupften etwas an den Halteseilen der Bäumchen herum. Wahrscheinlich weil sie Nistmaterial gesucht haben. Meine Schwester hat sie dann immer recht barsch verscheucht und nun machen sie sich allen Anschein nach einen Spaß daraus Dinge in dem Garten zu zerpicken. Herzallerliebst ;D

Das klingt typisch :D. Meine beste Freundin sagt auch immer, Vögel wären eigentlich keine Haustiere. Die sind zu schlau. Deswegen sind sie auch so dreist.
Tja.

weißt du wer mich auch verarscht? die Alpha-Amsel bei uns in der Häuserreihe. Sie landet gerne bei uns auf dem Balkon und singt wie bekloppt. Manchmal wenns Wetter schön ist stelle ich meine zwei Stinker auf den Balken, dann kommt Craig (so haben wir ihn genannt) und singt neben denen. Aber ein mal war Craig auf Krawall gebürstet und sprang auf den Käfig und schrie meine zwei Doofies an :D und letztens, als ich Wäsche zusammengelegt habe fühlte ich mich so beobachtet. Ich guck hoch, und wen seh ich? Richtig, Craig, der auf dem Fensterbrett sitzt und mich beim Wäsche zusammenlegen beobachtet XD Hab noch schnell ein Foto machen können...ich sag dir, der stalkt mich...

Vielleicht ist Craig eifersüchtig auf deine Finken und möchte auch gerne Teil der Familie sein

Cute birds sitting in a heart-shape surrounded by tiny white flowers sounds a guarantee for kitsch; but you really managed to avoid it. Truly impressive:o (Eek)  Besides I really like what you have done with the leaves, all from different angles and variously twisted. Lovely how the light shines through them from behind. Clap

Thank you! Well, I did a few more bird pieces, and my colouring style hasn’t changed significantly in recent years, either – only improved ;). I also did more than piece in greens…

Thank you, that makes me so happy! I was actually waiting for any "a heart-shape? That’s cheesy" comments form the giftees and/or the birthday party participants, but nobody dared to say it :D. I also think that this level of cheesiness is totally fine.
